We are proud to announce that we are acquiring SchwabLearning.org, the highly respected Web site dedicated to helping parents of children with learning and attention problems. You can read the full announcement and check out SchwabLearning.org if you haven't already seen it.
If you ask parents of a child with a learning problem about the difficult journey they've been on, you'll quickly recognize that we have a wonderful new opportunity here to provide a much needed service — and an awesome responsibility. Parents have a profound need for accurate information and empathetic support, whether their child has a specific learning disability, AD/HD or a learning challenge that doesn't qualify for special education. The issues can be complex and the right approach to help a child is not necessarily easy to determine.
SchwabLearning.org has done a great job helping parents for more than a decade. Our challenge is to maintain this excellence and build on it. We have great respect for Charles and Helen Schwab, who took it upon themselves to create this resource, and for the staff members of SchwabLearning.org, who have done a fantastic job bringing the Schwabs' vision to reality.
SchwabLearning.org has made research-based information accessible to parents. We recognize we have a lot to learn in this area, and we're bringing in a new editor and writers with expertise in learning difficulties to help us. We will also create a new advisory council of experts in these issues.
We see this as an exciting opportunity for GreatSchools to bring information, support and advice to an even broader range of parents. We're dedicated to serving more parents as they work through their children's learning challenges. At the same time, we're also going to work to help every parent learn what parents of children with learning difficulties know: Each child is unique, with unique abilities and needs. All can be empowered to manage their challenges, overcome setbacks and achieve success in their lives.
